VICTORIAN DÉCOR CAN BE MODERN TOO

September 13th, 2012 by Susan Jecminek

 

Victorian décor can be very ornate and fancy but, it can be sleek with contemporary lines as well.  Designs have been so eclectic though the years that adding just a few pieces or paint can make a major difference.  There is an abundance of furniture styles, hardware, light fixtures, bath and kitchen designs that lend itself to the Victorian style with just a few choice pieces without being ornate.  I found a wonderful source I’d like to share, HOUZZ, which is full of wonderful ideas.  Also, if you are a pinterest fan, check out Julie Donnell-Oliver get some great ideas going and  Enjoy!!
